Review

The Z4 will appeal to those looking for a comfortable and relatively practical convertible sports car. However, if you're looking for something that's primarily precise, fun and exciting to drive, both the Audi TT Roadster and Porsche Boxster outshine it considerably.

Trim: Z4

Engine: sDrive M40i

When you plant your right foot on the accelerator pedal, its 335bhp 3.0-litre straight six responds with virtually no turbo lag, rocketing you from 0-62mph in a claimed 4.5 seconds. It also sounds much more invigorating than the four-cylinder engines with a smooth, free-revving nature that suits the M40i’s more focused demeanour. We even like the M40i’s snappy eight-speed gearbox.
